    Default FloSoftball Master Verbal.... Ripoff!

    Okay so maybe FloSoftball isn’t a complete ripoff but one of the main reasons I pay an ungodly subscription rate is to be able to use the master verbal list.

    For those of you that don’t know what that is, it is a list of self reported player verbals to college programs. If your daughter is in the recruiting process, the MVL might be a pretty handy tool to help decide what schools to email and what schools to attend camps because in theory you can sort the list by graduation year, college, club team etc. It also lists players positions.

    Since approximately fall camp season, it has been down, not updated and the sort feature doesn’t work. The winter camp season is rapidly drawing to a close. The site says please be patient, under construction. Well, I’ve been patient, I’ve sent emails, and it’s 2018. Time to take this fight to the streets!

    Bring back the Free Goldfastpitch.com site. I thought their search sort function worked better than Flo's.

    I could have sworn it was updated regularly this fall. I know I looked at it often.

    Yes the subscription rate is high! So I found a few other parents that were interesting subscribing and everyone pitched in and we all use the same login.

    I did too, half the time it wouldn’t work and was pretty hit or miss with adding in the regular updates to the full list. Info was there but had to look in several places.

    Sort feature hasn’t worked in a long time for sure.

    I still like it, like the stories and training stuff. Just had to vent a bit after I tried to use it today and realized how long it’s been jacked up.

    Updated - yes. Completely accurate - probably not. Not sure a list of this type could ever be 100% accurate.

    It must be close, the list has my DD committed twice to the same school ! :/

    You pay money to access the fastpitch equivalent of the National Enquirer?

    Why do you call it that? They stream a ton of games and provide other good content. It isn't cheap, I agree. But it isn't a fly-by-night operation by any means.....curious about your take on it...

    I subscribed so I could watch my DD play in the JO Cup last summer, but have cancelled my Month to Month subscription a couple of months ago. Looking back I should have done the yearly option. Btw, is there anything fun to do in St. Louis in July?
